Traveling from Flushing to Manhattan via the subway, as well as throughout NYC, I became entranced by the tile murals that line many subway platforms. The tunneling of the subways through bedrock and beneath the city, the people who ride the subway, the sound of a screeching train, and the slogan, “If you see something, say something” inspired this stop-motion, eavesdropping, dreamlike journey film. The film also follows the poet and writer Eileen Myles on parts of the journey. 2006 (click on image to view YouTube excerpt)
